Poppies falling at the Festival of RemembranceThis annual Festival, held at the Royal Albert Hall, commemorates and honours all those who have lost their lives in conflicts, and is both a moving and enjoyable evening. There is a matinee (2pm) and an evening performance - both are exactly the same except that the Royal Family attend only the evening performance.




Last year's Festival featured Rod Stewart, performing Sailing and Auld Lang Syne, Alexandra Burke, Russell Watson and the Military Wives Choir, alongside the Massed Bands of the Household Division, the Band of HM Royal Marines, the Queen's Colour Squadron and the RAF Squadronaires.

The Festival of Remembrance is broadcast by the BBC - BBC1 Saturday 9.15pm - 10.50pm and BBC Radio 2 Saturday 8pm - 9pm. Please check your local guides for details.

A special video or DVD of the Festival of Remembrance is available soon after the event from the Legion's Poppy Shop - www.poppyshop.org.uk.
